Updates from the Art Room…

What a busy year it’s been in the art room. We showcased our student talent during the annual Elementary Art Exhibition two weeks ago and had great attendance and support particularly from parents and peers. The show displayed one masterpiece from every student in KG-Gr 5 at ASB (over 300 individually hung and labled pieces!) It was my first time setting up a student exhibition…aside from the routine bulletin boards and individual project displays in schools…

It was a lot of work, but so rewarding to see the students walk their parents through the display with pride and explain their artwork to their friends and siblings.   Already brainstorming plans for contiuining the exhibition in our new facility next year.

As we began taking down the artwork from the exhibition to send home with the kids, we recieved notice from the leadership team at ASB that in order to complete renovation and construction plans on our current facility, we would need to physically move out of and close 30% of our current educational space.  Which includes 50% of the ES floor- which includes the art room.  So Friday, Jayshree Deepa and I sent our classes out to their homerooms for lessons or time with their teachers, and used the day to begin the exhausting task of packing the art supplies.

  

We packed up 52 boxes…working nonstop from arrival at school until my after school screen printing kids showed up at 3.. We’ve planned ahead and set aside the supplies needed to finish the year in baskets that will be stored in classrooms for the last 5 weeks of school.  Add it to my list of “things I never imagined doing in my first year teaching” 🙂 No surprise I slept 12 hours last night…
Blessing to this frantic packing madness: we won’t have to worry about packing it all the last week of school…

More life, family, wedding updates to come with time… but a peek into work for now… no matter what comes my way though:

I have set the LORD continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Psalm 16:8
